The current exhibition "Revealed: Reconsidered Substance, Shape & Form" begins April 12 and runs until June 1, 2013.
"Revealed" is an exhibition about found objects, re-cycled industrial refuse, assemblages, materials re-formed and re-configured, and images re-imagined. Four established Cincinnati artists present unique interpretations of shape, form and color combinations, controlled variations of altered objects, and singular impressions of layered material finds in carefully delineated compositions.
The charismatic and engaging works are captivating, yet reflect strong formal considerations founded in visual and design aesthetics.
An opening Artists’ Reception will be held on Friday, April 12, 6-8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
